 The benefit of **eduroam** is that it is not only available at the Institute of Computer Science's locations, but also in any other buildings of the University of Bonn, as well as other participating Universities - both national and international. The benefit of **eduroam** is that it is not only available at the Institute of Computer Science's locations, but also in any other buildings of the University of Bonn, as well as other participating Universities - both national and international.
  
-Everything you need to know to install this service on your device can be found on the [[https://www.hrz.uni-bonn.de/de/english-information/internet-und-netzzugang-en/wlan/eduroam-en/beschreibung-eduroam|HRZ website]].+Nearly everything you need to know to install this service on your device can be found on the [[https://www.hrz.uni-bonn.de/en/services/internet-and-network-access/instructions/linux/eduroam-in-linux|HRZ website]].
  
 +===== Specific hints for the Informatics + B-IT building =====
 +
 +In the new building in Poppelsdorf, we had to name the wireless network '''eduroam-cs'''. All other [[#Connection Parameters|connection parameters]] are the same.
 +
 +The suffixed SSID is necessary as there are neighboring eduroam networks which interfere with each other. So only the university-wide deployed eduroam network SSID (operated by the HRZ) is called 'eduroam', while other institutions use a suffixed version, just as we do. So if you want to connect to eduroam at the computer science dept., you have to  connect to the SSID 'eduroam-cs' instead.
 +
 +Some hints for a few operating systems that don't allow you to set all necessary parameters manually:
 +
 +==== MacOS-X or iOS ====
 +
 +  - proceed as described by the HRZ (see below) using the normal MacOS-X/iOS Eduroam/Uni-Bonn installer (this also installs the necessary certificates)
 +  - afterwards, install the profile provided [[https://gsg.cs.uni-bonn.de/files/eduroam/eduroam-cs.mobileconfig|here]].
 +
 +==== Windows ====
 +
 +Please download the [[https://cat.eduroam.de/|Eduroam CAT Tool]] and install it. Then you can create a new Wifi-profile using the connection parameters issued further [[#Connection Parameters|down below]] on this site.
 +
 +==== Linux ====
 +
 +Please create a new wifi-profile in your favorite network-manager frontend (or manually of course) using the connection parameters issued further [[#Connection Parameters|down below]] on this site.
 +
 +===== Quick Guide for Smartphones running Android =====
 +
 +for recent Android versions (>4.0), the configuration of eduroam at the computer science dept. is rather simple. Just connect to the SSID "eduroam-cs" and fill in the following dialog with the Values from the table further [[#Connection Parameters|down below]].
 +
 +If the connection fails due to invalid certificates, please use the [[https://cat.eduroam.de/|CAT Tool]] to install the necessary certificates, then try again as mentioned above.
 +
 +==== Connection Parameters ====
 +
 +Please use the following connection parameters:
